Full Text

A pretty spring wedding was solemnized on Wednesday afternoon, May 2nd, in St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Grimsby, when May, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S.T. Henley of Grimsby was united in marriage to Mr. Albert Sydney Hewitt, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hewitt, of Hamilton, Rev. J. Allan Ballard performing the ceremony.

The bride entered the church on the arm of her father to the strains of the Lohengrin wedding march, looking charming in a white satin gown, a gift of an aunt in England, with long tulle veil caught at the side with orange blossoms and carrying a bouquet of briarcliffe roses and baby's breath. Miss Jean McKenzie, of Grimsby, was bridesmaid, wearing a pretty frock of robin's-egg blue crepe de chine with large maize hat trimmed with blue ribbon and carrying a bouquet of Joanna Hill roses and blue iris. The groom was attended by Mr. George Shoesmith of Fruitland. During the signing of the register, Mrs. Morris of Stoney Creek, who was at the organ, played "O Promise Me".

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, Main St. W., at which about 50 guests were present from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Toronto, Thorold, Fruitland, Hamilton, Stoney Creek, New Toronto and Grimsby.

Later the young couple left to spend their honeymoon at Niagara-on-the-Lake and points east, the bride travelling in a navy blue crepe suit with matching accessories.

On their return Mr. and Mrs. Hewitt will reside in Hamilton.
